Argentinian WBA former featherweight world champion Jonathan Barros already in Puebla, Mexico with his trainer Ricardo Bracamonte and his assistant Juan Carlos Azcurra. On Saturday Barros fights for the IBF super featherweight world title against current champ Juan Carlos Salgado at the Miguel Hidalgo Gym in this city. “It will be a difficult bout. I’m fighting in a higher weight category than mine, but I hope to win the title. I learned a lot after having faced Celestino “Pelenchin” Caballero and I think those experiences have given me more confidence in my career. We’ve had a good preperation and whatever the result it’ll be a good fight….I want to be world champion. It’s a great challenge and I’m here for my family,” said Barros.

Word is lightweight Richard Abril (17-3-1, 8 KOs) could return on October 13 to defend his WBA crown against unbeaten Sharif Bogere (23-0, 15 KOs) in Las Vegas. It would be April’s first fight since losing a controversial split decision against former champion Brandon Rios in April. The WBA officially announced that Abril would be allowed to keep his interim title, despite the loss to Rios, who didn’t make weight for the fight. Abril was later elevated to WBA regular champion. Previously it was thought that April would be defending against Gavin Rees, who is now being mentioned as a possible opponent for former world champion Yuriorkis Gamboa.
Five undefeated fighters, including 9-0 heavyweight Alex Flores, who is rated #37 in the world by the WBC, will step into the ring at this Thursday’s Fight Club OC in The Hangar at the OC Fair & Event Center. The six bout card promoted by Roy Englebrecht Promotions may be the company’s best matched card of the year and some tickets still remain for the 7:30pm show. In one of the featured bouts of the night, top heavyweight prospect Alexander “The Great” Flores will take is perfect 9-0 record with 7 knockouts into his toughest bout of his young career, when he meets 10-4 Las Vegas product Henry Namauu. Namauu who is a former football player at UNLV has scored 5 knockout wins, so this eight round bout should see fireworks. Flores, who just turned 22 years of age on August 9th, received a nice birthday present, as the latest WBC rating came out last week and he moved ahead of 2008 US Olympian Deontay Wilder and is now rated the 37th best heavyweight in the world.
